1780 Revolutionary War Imprint “UNANIMITY, A POEM”


1780-Dated Revolutionary War Period, 1st Edition Imprint titled, “UNANIMITY, A POEM” by J. MACAULAY, printed by T. Cadell In The Strand, London, Choice Very Fine.


This original, 11” x 9" large size 18 page printed pamphlet was written for the English public, printed in London, with words of encouragement and national pride during the 1770’s and 80s while England was engaged in the Revolutionary War with Colonial America. It is in very nice condition, being clean, uncut, in original condition, with only slight expected tone. It is well printed and clean overall. The front and rear covers are intact, the page edges a little fragile, bound together by the original string. It reads, in part:

“Midst foreign tumults and domestic jars,

The snares of treason and the spoil of wars

Her native strength can ev'ry blast oppose,

And hurl defiance on her boasting foes...”

This impressive and historically interesting early Revolutionary War period imprint would be a great addition to your early American related documents, or English History collection. The first we have offered.
